applied for a variance and unfortunately due to a number of circumstances near mr. murphy or i or any representative knew about the hearing, didn't attend and pro forma, as i understand, it it got turned down. i originally applied for the variance mix. i was called by the -- well, i was told by the planner, mr. adrian putra that he had a couple of issues. i reported that back to my client and my client at that point hired a specialist/consultant who worked on garages. he told us he was working with mr. putra. there was a hearing. mr. murphy came to the hearing for the variance. it was postponed. mr. murphy left for ireland for the summer. as far as we know our consultant was working with planning staff. he was not in contact with me or mr. murphy. a hearing got scheduled, i wasn't notified about the hearing. normally i'm the applicant and i get a call or letter telling me to go down and pick up the poster and bring it out to the site. and that has happened in every case. in this case it didn't happen. my understanding is that a letter was sent to mr. murphy's house. mr. murphy wasn'
. thank you. >> mr. murphy, condolences for your father-in-law. i wanted to ask the same questions i asked of mr. sanchez, the zoning administrator about the no-shows in may and july. >> i went to a hearing in april. he was right about that. we continued it, mr. pollard was there with me with mr. sanchez and mr. pollard said he was going to submit in documentation to the planner and i left at that. i was not aware there was a hearing in may alt all. the first i heard about that was this evening and i was gone. again the problem is staff could have and should have in my mind reached out to the architect. weas my he was my agent. >> thank you, mr. murphy. >> is there any public comment? seeing none, commissioners the matter is submitted. >> i have a question for mr. sanchez. when we hear testimony that your agency should have reached out to the applicant, when they don't show up multiple times, would that be your protocol to reach out to the applicant, in this case the architect, rather than the property owner? >> thank you, scott sanchez, planning department. in hearing the juri

recognizes the gentleman from pennsylvania, mr. murphy, for five minutes. mr. murphy: thank you, mr. speaker. mr. speaker, thank you also for your service and friendship to our country. watching the media, mr. speaker, and hearing a lot of distortion of what happened in the house chamber yesterday. let's recall that on december 31 at midnight taxes went up for every taxpayer. massively. the fiscal cliff. by the end of the evening the house came together, working with the senate, and reduced taxes for 99% of american taxpayers. we kept taxes lower for dividend income, capital gains. we maintained the higher child tax credit. we helped keep the marriage penalty from hurting families. and we did this in a permanent way. this is a big win. we have a lot of work to do, but that was a big win. now, the president also promised that he would work with us to have further cuts in spending. we should hold him to that promise on both sides of the aisle. we have several serious issues to come in this congress. the 113th congress. we have to deal with the debt ceiling. spending cuts. implementation and re
motion. mr. murphy: madam speaker, this is the final amendment to the bill which will not kill the bill or send it back to committee. if adopted the bill will be amended and immediately proceed to final passage. madam speaker, i appreciate that the republican leadership has put forward legislation that would raise the nation's debt ceiling, agreeing it is not an option for the united states to default on its obligations. i also support that members of congress should not be paid if they do not do their jobs. part of which is to pass a responsible budget, but i do not agree with the political gamesmanship of once again playing politics with our serious fiscal issues and using short-term gimmicks rather than working to find long-term solutions. we need to stop playing games with the debt ceiling and spend our time in energy on job creation. i supported a clean debt limit bill, however, because in this version congressional pay has been tied directly to passing a budget, it is important to ensure that the budget that is passed is responsible and protects our most vulnerable citizens. my am

murphy. >> thank you very much, mr. chairman, excited to be a part of the committee and with a fans tas tick panel. i'll get out of the way so you can provide testimony. i'll say this, having chair the health committee in the state legislature in virginia for years, we grappled with this problem year after year, and i remember specifically a meeting i had with about, maybe 15 or 20 medical students at the university of connecticut, and at some point in the meeting, we talked about the affordable care agent and how it could help medical students, talking about the issue of the high level of indebtedness, and i asked how many are considering, not committed to, but considering going into primary care, and of the 15 students around the table, one raised their hand. one was only even considering it. we started to examine the question as to why they didn't even have it on their mind. certainly, dollars were the first thing they mentioned. all of them would have extreme levels of indebtedness, even from a state university, and they couldn't figure out how to make it work with the salary they m
with these tee shirts that target has produced for the st. patrick's day parade in which mrs. mcpeek derided the fact that they were making fun of the irish in the united states, you know, things like i survived the kelly murphy family gathering, things like that. and they wrote letters poking fun at what i thought was a couragous op ed piece. so this is in response to the irish americans who don't feel the pride that they should. and please excuse if i manhandle the irish manner of speaking. this is a joke told to me by one of my friends. he said that an american, an irish american, was golfing with his wife on a weekend. and he hit the ball into the rough. went looking for it. all of a sudden, a leprechaun jumped up. we're back to the leprechaun theme. he said, top of the morning to you, lad. he says, you're a leprechaun. he says, yes, i am, and you have 3 wishes. three wishes? he says, yes. you have 3 wishes. i want to be a par golfer.. he says, no problem. from now on, par and under. he says, i want a porsche. he says, when you go home tonight, there will be a porsche in your garage. and

. >> thank you. senator murphy? >> thank you very much, mr. chairman. i worry about our ability to micromanage this problem. a lot of the ideas we are talking about are incredibly important. but whether it is great setting or loan forgiveness programs -- i am sometimes more attractive to the idea of resetting the marketplace itself to give the marketplace more reason to invest in primary care. one of the things we talked about is how this delivery system based on a bigger systems of care, that it may lend -- it may help solve this prestige issue. if you are in charge of specialists as opposed to referring out to specialists, you feel better about your work. there is a theory that says if you have more primary-care doctors working for organizations rather than working on their own and you have an aco that is getting a payment to take care of a big group of patients, the aco is going to be incentivize to pay its primary care physicians more. that will help keep the delta of whatever they say. you already see that happening. more primary-care physicians are going to work for hospit

, please, no comments while mr. heslin is speaking or we'll clear the room. >> a moment last night when neil heslin was shouted down by gun advocates. he's back with senator chris murphy. let me turn to you, senator, if i may, first, this situation with the nra. you've done a lot of investigation into the genuine effectiveness of their political strategy because there is the perception that they're well armed with cash and they go off to politicians who are potentially against their commercial interests and they get them ousted. in reality, how successful are the nra at doing that? >> well, they're much less successful than they used to be, and that's the point that i'm trying to make to my colleagues. because i have a feeling that there are a lot of republicans and democrats that know exactly what the right thing to do is here. they know that if they want to make it less likely that there's a school shooting in their district, that they should join us, join the parents of newtown and pass a strong gun reform measure that gets these high capacity magazines off the streets and puts in ba
